Sometimes our emotions can get the better of us. As fragile human beings we tend to fluctuate, there are times when we are exuberant, then we can fall into an abyss of sadness and can become self condemning. There is something profound and beautiful about this that God has spoken to us in His word about this emotional deficiency.
1 John 3:20(NKJV)
” For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things”.
This is a life changing word, God is saying He is much greater than our salty condemning emotions. The Word “heart” in the Greek translates a much deeper meaning when further studied: (kardia) kar-dee’-ah: the heart, i.e. (figuratively) the thoughts or feelings (mind).
So if your emotions waver and you begin to sink, then I suggest you tell yourself “God is bigger than my emotions, I am not condemned I am blessed forevermore in the name of Jesus, amen”
“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit”.
